    when an user register to wordpress blog, he have to set a nickname which is mandatory..but by default the nickname = username
    and this is a problem for me...

    how to make a restriction to the nickname field so it do not allow users to use same login name and nickname.

    Create another field with the real name and put the Nickname in the user field.
    Hope that this answer will be helpful.

    this form is managed by the user-profil.php file...
    can't figure how to modify it without the "overwrite by update" problem

    and i have no idea if a plugin could hijack the post of this form and tweak the form validation.
